Need to delete folder over 2 days old and starts with F

Need to delete folder over 2 days old and starts with F

Need to delete folder over 2 days old and starts with F

(OP)
Thanks in advance for the help.  I have a script that will delete folders over 2 days old.  I just don't know how to tweak it to only delete folders over 2 days which start with the letter "f".   

Set objFileSys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFolder = objFileSys.GetFolder("d:\test")
 For Each Folder In objFolder.SubFolders
 FolderCreated = Folder.DateCreated
 FolderAge = DateDiff("d", FolderCreated, Now)
     If FolderAge > 2 Then
         Folder.Delete
     End If
 Next


Please help this noob out.  
Thanks.

RE: Need to delete folder over 2 days old and starts with F

Google on FileSystemObject Folder Name would have retrieved....

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/2z9ffy99(VS.85).aspx

Which would have told you that the folder name property is.....and this may seem bizarre.....called Name.

Hence

Set objFileSys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFolder = objFileSys.GetFolder("d:\test")

For Each Folder In objFolder.SubFolders
    FolderCreated = Folder.DateCreated
    FolderAge = DateDiff("d", FolderCreated, Now)
    
    If FolderAge > 2 And Left(Folder.Name,1) = "F" Then
        Folder.Delete
    End If
Next
